A generation fallen.

A country that will never be the same again.

Nowhere in England avoids the searing loss of young men during the First World War and the remote Devon village of Shallowford is no exception. Many never return and the lives of those who do come back are changed forever.

Paul Craddock must try to rebuild the estate and, with more difficulty, the bonds broken between the people who belong there. It is a time of huge social change and there are challenges in peace as hard to surmount as those of war. And before they are met, Germany once again threatens the stability of Europe and a way of life so hard won.

‘Sheer, wonderful storytelling’ – Chicago Tribune

Reviews

Mr Delderfield's manner is easy, modest, heartwarming
<i>Evening Standard</i>
R F Delderfield is a born storyteller
<i> Sunday Mirror</i>
Sheer, wonderful storytelling
<i>Chicago Tribune</i>
It is always a pleasure to read R F Delderfield, because he never seems to be ashamed of writing well
<i>Books and Bookmen</i>
Highly recommended. Combines tension with a splendid sense of atmosphere and vivid characterisation. An excellent read
<i>Sunday Express</i>
He built an imposing artistic social history that promises to join those of his great forebears in the long, noble line of the English novel. His narratives belong in a tradition that goes back to John Galsworthy and Arnold Bennett
